What are the benefits of lemons?

Many people know fresh lemons contain citrates, which lower the risk of kidney stones. They may also know that lemons are rich in vitamin C. But another secret weapon lemons have is called flavonoids. Flavonoids have powerful, wide-ranging effects.

One specific flavonoid in lemons can help remove fat from the liver, balance lipids in the liver, and support healthy blood sugar levels. It also helps protect the integrity of the capillaries.

Other potential health benefits of lemons:

• They may help with bleeding gums

• They help support peripheral circulation

• They may help with hyperglycemia

• They may help improve HDL

• They may help lower LDL

• They may help lower the risk of chronic venous insufficiency

• They contain potent anti-inflammatory compounds and may help with arthritis, fibrosis, and clotting

• They may help decrease glycation

• They may help reduce insulin resistance

• They have a profound effect on diabetic cardiomyopathy

• They are neuroprotective

• They have antimicrobial properties

To maximize the benefits of consuming lemons, you can make a simple drink using the whole lemon rather than just lemon juice. Try blending one whole lemon with 12 ounces of water and a few drops of stevia or my Electrolyte Powder for a delicious, healthy lemon drink. You can also add apple cider vinegar for additional benefits. For best results, enjoy this drink in the mornings.
